North Carolina rapper J.K. The Reaper aligns provoking lyricism with 808 engulfed hi-hats and synth melodies that typically induce simplicity, much like contemporaries Joey BadA$$, Denzel Curry, and Earl Sweatshirt. Born Jabril Kenan, he first found a passion for hip-hop through his father's all genre-encompassing, record collection that endlessly grew as his father pursued his own passion of holding parties down on the ones and two’s. A home life where music discovery was the ultimate currency undoubtedly influenced the development of J.K. The Reaper’s knack for putting rhymes and beats together, with unshakable inspiration drawn from the likes of Nas and Outkast.
